She has shown that she “love” to play for Germany that she was “with heart and passion”.
It is therefore “all the more disappointing that it did not work” with the entry into the final tournament of the Billie Jean King Cup. After 1: 3 in Kazakhstan it goes for Kerber and Co. in the play-offs (11./12. November) against the descent.
The three-time Grand Slam winner himself was satisfied with their increase, although they had played a 5-3 lead in the crucial sentence at 6: 4, 3: 6, 5: 7 against Jelena Rybakina. “I can not accuse myself, I left my heart in the square and fought to the end,” Kerber said, which had opened up the prelude of the duel against Julia Putinzewa.
For the 34-year-old, after returning immediately goes on to Stuttgart, the timetable tournament on Sand won it in 2015 and 2016. After a corona pause in the preparation and a messed back with only two wins in Indian Wells, however, Kerber is only outsider in the world-class field.
